Guestbook comments from the owner

Your house was perfect and had everything we needed. One of my favorite things was just relaxing at the house enjoying the lovely view and the visiting deer. We definitely want to come back.

Great Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time at this beautiful property in Fish Creek although we have been vacationing as a family there for about seven years. Our family is multi-generational and there was plenty of activity (biking, hiking, swimming, kayaking, hanging out at the beach) for everyone. One very big plus is the close proximity to Peninsula State Park--a five minute bike ride, ten minute walk. The house itself is lovely and maintained very well. All beds were comfortable, kitchen was well-equipped, the gas grill was excellent--all things that contribute to easy vacation living. The owners were warm and communicative when we had questions. All in all a great vacation property!

Wonderful Place!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at this home. Our favorite family vacation was camping at Peninsula State Park for many years. This home is in a great location which is off the main hwy. with a quiet location, yet so close to the entrance to the park we are able to bike to the entrance. It is completely supplied with all our needs & plenty of space for our family. The owners are very pleasant to deal with. They respond quickly & are very reasonable. It is obvious they love their place & we are very thankful they offer it for rent!

Owner's Response: We DO love our home and are happy to share it with others. We agree that it is a restful environment while still being close to all Door County has to offer. We know our renters appreciate having a fully stocked home...we tell them to just bring their clothes and relax!! We enjoy getting coffee and chai at Blue Horse then hiking through Peninsula Park to discover deer and wild turkeys. The views are spectacular and rejuvenate us after our hectic work schedules. Peninsula Park and Ridges Sanctuary are great places to "get away from it all"... even in the busy summer months in Door County. Watching a play at American Folklore Theater in Peninsula Park or Door Shakespeare at Bjorklunden in Bailey's Harbor make our evenings interesting. Then home to roast marshmallows on our fire pit to cap off our full but restful days. Wow...I wish I was there now!!

We have been going to Door County many years and have stayed at" Fish Creek Retreat" for the last 7 years. The home is very well stocked with wash cloths & towels and extra blankets and pillows and the kitchen has all the utensils one would need. The home is very clean and well maintained and you feel right at home when you arrive. The fire pit off the rear deck is ideal for roasting marsh mellows or just relax watching the fire. We have found the owners very easy to work with and are looking forward to our visit next year.

Wonderful Vacation Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed at this great home for multiple years, and we keep coming back. My dealings with the owners couldn't be easier, and they have a wonderful property to share with us Door County lovers! The location is ideal: it's very private, well-appointed and but a stone's throw from many Fish Creek amenities. Each year when we talk about vacationing in Door County, the decision is always to return to "Fish Creek Retreat!"

Needs updating

  • 3 of 5

The location is actually close to a busy road so we could hear traffic most days. The back yard is small but has a nice fire pit which is great for roasting marshmallows. The sheets felt very old as they slipped off the bed overnight and were scratchy. The decor is also a bit 90's and could use updating. The flow of the cabin is great, nice size living room. Kitchen was small for us to work in, but had all the cooking utensils needed. I did not find Barbara very pleasant during any of our phone conversations. Also she kept $100 of the deposit to remove a few children's stickers off the carpet the kids much have done by accident. We checked the place thoroughly before we left, so I know there couldn't have been many since I didn't even notice it. This was our 9th annual family get together and we have rented many places and for this price range I would rate the property average.

Owner's Response: We are sorry this tenant was unhappy. While we appreciate constructive information about our home, most of her comments stem from her anger about the retention of a portion of her security deposit. A deduction was made because the children's stickers were found on both our tile and carpet and left a sticky residue that required extra time and cleaning products for our housekeeper to remove. As to the "90's" feel of our home, we have intentionally furnished it in a style consistent with the casual and comfortable feel of Door County. The kitchen is equipped with everything needed to prepare both small and large family meals. We have always been professional and welcoming in our conversations with our tenants and will continue to do so. As to noise and her other complaonts, in our 6 years of renting our home, our tenants consistently comment on the restfulness of our home. In fact, one of their party wrote in our guest book, "Your home is in a beautiful setting. So peaceful even though so close to town. Enjoyed our time here very much."
